Facing the All Blacks

A memorable win for Newport

All Blacks lose at Rodney Parade 1963

In 1963 the New Zealand All Blacks made a 36-match international tour.  They won 35 of their matches, facing defeat only at Rodney Parade.  

This film clip starts with the New Zealand team performing the traditional Haka challenge to their opponents, and ends with the delighted crowd racing onto the pitch and literally jumping for joy.
